The carrier also informed Fannin 30 days was too soon after the tragedy to get Salon Meritage up and running--before eventually paying her $30,000, which is less than half of what the business lost being closed, reads the 11-page complaint filed with the assistance of her attorney, Howard S. Shernoff.
The business that Fannin sold to another hair stylist has yet to reopen, but there are plans to do so in a completely remodeled space within the next few months.
